Thought for the day
"The supreme trick of mass insanity is that it persuades you that the only abnormal person is the one who refuses to join in the madness of others, the one who tries vainly to resist. We will never understand totalitarianism if we do not understand that people rarely have the strength to be uncommon." -- Eugene Ionesco
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida created a firestorm this month for what he did to about 50 migrants, mostly from Venezuela, who had recently crossed the southern border: He put them on two planes that took them to Martha’s Vineyard, the famously liberal and upscale vacation destination in Massachusetts. He was following the lead, albeit more explosively, of his fellow G.O.P. governor Greg Abbott of Texas, in sending migrants to progressive strongholds.
To understand what’s going on, I spoke with my colleague Miriam Jordan, who has been covering the story at the border and across the U.S.
In the run up to the once-every-five-years congress, the party likes to take the opportunity to arrest and sentence high ranking officials to remind them of their place.
Xi is also hoping to break with tradition and award himself a third five-year term at the congress which no leader has done since Chairman Mao.
The Telegraph reported that a 'military coup' which was claimed to have put Xi under house arrest on Saturday was not true amid fears that he will not get his wish to stay Chinese president.
Webmaster addition: The propaganda that flooded social media appeared to be well organized. I think there was a real attempt at a coup which has been put down.
Corona policy was primarily focused on directing citizen behavior such as wearing mouth masks, keeping a distance, staying home, and test and vaccination readiness – experimental measures with no scientific basis. This is evidenced by the large-scale use of behavioral scientists in implementation and communication of corona policy. The government and media are supported in this behavioral management by the RIVM (the Dutch CDC) Corona Behavior Unit and the government-wide Corona Behavior Team.
The application of behavioral insights is taking off during corona, and various government departments are working together to develop “interventions” that make citizens more compliant with corona rules. “This is the first policy topic on which the government has deployed relatively large amounts of behavioral expertise,” BIN NL writes in report “Rich in Behavioral Insights” (2021). This behavioral expertise focuses on fueling autonomous and unconscious behavior by acting on emotions such as fear, shame, guilt, wanting to maintain a positive self-image, or wanting to belong to the group. Or, by presenting information or possibilities in such a way that the ‘right’ choice is automatically made.
At the beginning of the crisis, in March 2020, the RIVM Corona Behavior Unit will be established. The behavioral unit aims to “promote the physical, mental and social health of the population,” and is supported in this by an advisory board and several expert teams including 40 professors and 19 doctors. They conduct research with which they support government communication and policy. The unit reports to, among others, the National Coordinator for Terrorism and Security (NCTV, the Dutch version of ‘Homeland Security’) and the National Crisis Communication Core Team (NKC). In addition to BIN-NL, the RIVM Corona Behavior Unit, the government-wide Corona Behavior Team is was established. They cooperate on developing interventions to promote compliance. The NKC coordinates press and public communications, drawing on the behavioral recommendations of the RIVM Corona Behavior Unit and the Corona Behavior Team.
You were instructed to stay at home to protect the healthcare system. But while you did so, hospitals essentially had a holiday, and this is backed up by official data. You were told the answer to everyone’s prayers was to get the Covid-19 injection. But now that you have done so, the healthcare system is on the brink of collapse.
Waiting times for ambulances are at an all-time high. The number of emergency calls due to people suffering cardiac arrest is at an all-time high. The number of people dying is at an all-time high, with hundreds of thousands of excess deaths occurring around the world every single week.
And official Government reports prove without a shadow of a doubt that it is all thanks to the Covid-19 vaccines.
World War II: More than 80 years ago was the start of the greatest slaughter in history.
If we are to approach the problem of “responsibility for the war”, then we first need to answer the following key questions:
- Who helped the Nazis come to power?
- Who sent them on their way to world catastrophe?
The entire pre-war history of Germany shows that the provision of the “necessary” policies were managed by the financial turmoil, in which the world was plunged into in the wake of World War I.
The key structures that defined the post-war development strategy of the West were the central financial institutions of Great Britain and the United States — the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve System (FRS) — and the associated financial and industrial organizations set out as a means to establish absolute control over the financial system of Germany and its ability to control political processes in Central Europe.
To implement this strategy, the following stages were envisaged:
- From 1919 to 1924 — to prepare the ground for massive American financial investment in the German economy;
- From 1924 to 1929 — the establishment of control over the financial system of Germany and financial support for Nazism (“national socialism”);
- From 1929 to 1933 — provoking and unleashing a deep financial and economic crisis and ensuring the Nazis come to power;
- From 1933 to 1939 — financial cooperation with the Nazi government and support for its expansionist foreign policy, aimed at preparing and unleashing a new World War.
It is definitely not normal for so many mainly young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. Many of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause.
Important Notes: The number of dead are included in the total number. There are also dozens of reports that are not included in the total number shown in the headline because they are not or may not be vaccine-related.
The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that “the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective.”
In response to their pronouncement, here is a non-exhaustive and continuously growing list of mainly young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021/2022 after receiving one or more COVID vaccines. Initially, many of these were not reported. We know that many people were told not to tell anyone about their adverse reactions and the media was not reporting them. They started happening and ramping up after the first COVID vaccinations. The mainstream media still are not reporting most, but sports news cannot ignore the fact that soccer players and other stars collapse in the middle of a game due to a sudden cardiac arrest. Many of those die – more than 50%.
As boosters that have not been tested on humans are being rolled out across the country, a new study indicates that the jab is far more dangerous than COVID-19 itself. And the CDC has provided false information regarding their tracking of adverse events linked to the vaccines.
As government officials and mainstream media urges the vaccinated to inject a second so-called “bivalent” booster said to be targeting the Omicron variant, it turns out that this substance hasn’t been tested on humans. And the only animal trial that has been performed included eight mice.
“It hasn’t been proven in a clinical trial, because we don’t have time to do a clinical trial because we need to get the vaccine out now because we have such a situation throughout the world and certainly in the United States, we’re having 400 deaths per day and up to 5,000 hospitalizations a day,” NIAID Dr Anthony Fauci explained in an interview.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has also stated that the boosters must be expedited in order to work properly. A delay would potentially render the shots “outdated” as new variants would form, Walensky argues.
A Canadian transgender high school teacher has gone viral after wearing a massive set of fake boobs with protruding nipples and short shorts in front of young students.
Joe Biden on Saturday departed the White House for another vacation.
Democrat Pennsylvania US Senate candidate John Fetterman agrees “LGBTQ education” should be “mandatory” for children in all schools.
Based on a chief economist, US house prices are expected to drop 20% since the sector is already in a recession.
A recent seminar at the United States Air Force Academy is yet another example of efforts to push the woke agenda in all elements of the US military.
A bombshell Washington Post investigation has revealed that the Pentagon is conducting a “sweeping audit of how it conducts clandestine information warfare,” after a variety of social media accounts, which its operatives used to target foreign audiences in elaborate psychological warfare efforts, were exposed.
The accounts violated platform rules and were eventually busted by researchers and the social networks they weaponized.
US defense policy advisor Colin Kahl is reported to have demanded that every Pentagon division engaged in “psychological operations online” provides a full account of their activities by October, due to high-level concerns that “attempted manipulation of audiences overseas” by the Department of Defense have significantly overstepped the mark.
Amid large-scale cancellations of flights at Beijing airport and massive military build-up in Beijing, rumours about a coup in China are going around for the last few days. It has been claimed by many that President Xi Jinping has been removed from the post, and that he has been put under house arrest by PLA. However, nothing has been confirmed till now, and probably the rumours are not true.
In the last few days, several Chinese social media handles had claimed that Xi Jinping has been stripped of his military powers and is under house arrest. It was claimed that the ‘coup’ took place when the Chinese premier was in Samarkand in Uzbekistan to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit. According to the rumours, when Jinping was in Samarkand, his distractors in the party convinced the party’s top leadership to remove Jinping from the leadership of the army.
Most of the China experts have highlighted that there are no signs of the coup beyond commentary on social media, particularly in Indian circles.
China expert Aadil Brar noted that Xi is likely in quarantine after returning from the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit, which would explain his absence from public affairs at the moment.
Brar also shared flight data showing there is no disruption of flights. He further shared visuals of public briefings by senior Chinese officials, suggesting that government is functioning normally.
Webmaster addition: So that part of the rumor appears to be false!
This year, parents and guardians stood together in opposition to the COVID-19 shot being required for their children to attend school. As a result of their coming together, the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) decided to rescind the mandate for Louisiana students. As of yesterday, it has officially been repealed.
In light of this victory for parents and their children, Attorney General Jeff Landry has filed a motion to dismiss the Crews v. Edwards case, wherein he sought to have the vaccine mandate enjoined and issued the following statement:
“Today is the culmination of hard work by so many concerned parents throughout Louisiana. This is the direct result of moms, dads, grandparents, and guardians fighting for what is right. I thank Representative Raymond Crews, Health Freedom Louisiana, the Bayou Mama Bears, Town Hall Baton Rouge, Children’s Health Defense, and all those from across Louisiana that stood with us for parental choice.
Child medical decisions should be made by their guardians, not the government. I hope this health freedom victory reminds everyone what can happen when we all work together. When citizens are engaged and get involved, their government will listen.” -Attorney General, Jeff Landry, Sept 21, 2022
Since David Hogg survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, he has been causing controversy for his remarks, mainly on social media, about guns and other political issues.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Hogg has made a curious announcement about his future.
He tweeted, “I’m never planning on having kids. I would much rather own a Porsche and have a Portuguese water dog and golden doodle [sic]. Long term it’s cheaper, better for The [sic] environment, and will never tell you that it hates you or ask you to pay for college.”
Hogg went on to explain that “Kids are the new boats. Like, yes kids are nice, but most people can’t afford them, so it’s nice to have friends with one but not have one yourself. Pets are the affordable version of kids today for
Millennials and Gen Z and plants are now the more affordable plants.”
It lasted about a week. The legislation prohibited physicians from prescribing puberty blockers or hormone therapy for patients under 18. If the doctors do not comply, they could be charged with a felony, spend up to ten years in jail, and pay $15,000 in fines.
A federal judge stepped in and issued an injunction.
The Post Millennial reported that an article in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy shows how using puberty blockers is based on little evidence. It deemed the safety and reversibility of the medication “implausible.”
Historians of the future, grilling spatchcocked plovers over their campfires, will need not ponder for even a New York minute who started World War Three in the rockin’ 2020s. They will point straight to the waxy, furtive, larval figure known as “Joe Biden,” by then judged a moral weevil of such epic low degree that he became an embarrassment to all the other sewer-dwelling denizens of the dank DC underworld, including the roaches, the rats, the humble shipworms eating through sunk oaken foundations of buildings long forgotten, the writhing maggots rinsed from a thousand restaurant dumpsters, the slithering hellgrammites, millipedes, silverfish, pillbugs, termites, dung-beetles, woodlice, and, not least, the scaly lawyers spawned out of the infestation beneath K Street called Perkins Coie LLP. Even these would loathe and disdain the thing that came into this world as “Joe Biden.”
Let us agree that the place called Ukraine was never any of America’s business. For centuries we ignored it, through all the colorful cavalry charges to-and-fro of Turks and Tatars, the reign of the dashing Zaporozhian Cossacks, the cruel abuses of Stalin, then Hitler, and the dull, gray Khrushchev-to-Yeltsin years. But then, having destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia and sundry other places all on a great hegemonic lark, the professional warmongers of our land and their catamites in Washington made Ukraine their next special project. They engineered the 2014 coup in Kiev that ousted the elected president, Mr. Yanyukovich, to set up a giant grifting parlor and international money-laundromat. The other strategic aim was to prepare Ukraine for NATO membership, which would have made it, in effect, a forward missile base right up against Russia’s border. Because, well, Russia, Russia, Russia!
An early beneficiary of these arrangements, you might recall, was one Hunter Biden, the drug-addicted, sex-obsessed, no-account son of Barack Obama’s no-account vice-president then known simply as Joe Biden sans quote-marks — because in 2014, he was a closer approximation of a real person than is sadly now the case. In fact, he was known as “The Big Guy” among Hunter’s business coterie (though listed as “Pedo Peter” on Hunter’s speed-dial). After the 2014 coup, and for years beyond, Hunter pulled a steady revenue stream out of Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings, a natgas distributor (among other things), serving as a know-nothing, no-show board member. When this monkey business came to the attention of President Trump, and he made a telephone inquiry about it, he was instantly beset by swarms of DC swamp vermin hoisting writs of impeachment.
The latest update of the U.S. Government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) today (Friday, September 23, 2022) records the death of a 37-year-old Oklahoma man two days after receiving the JYNNEOS/BAVARIAN NORDIC monkeypox vaccine.
He was vaccinated on September 7th, and died two days later on September 9th. (Source.)
This is the second recent death made available to the public since the vaccines were made available just 3 months ago (June, 2022).
The first death was a Hollywood makeup artist, who died 9 days after receiving a monkeypox vaccine. (Source.)
According to the CDC, as of September 20th, 684,980 doses of the monkeypox vaccine have been administered, the bulk of them being in July and August. (Source.)
With less than .1% of the public now being vaccinated with the monkeypox vaccine, there have been 719 cases filed in VAERS, including 1 death, 1 permanent disability, 3 life threatening events, 56 emergency room visits, and 4 hospitalizations. (Source.)
The Israeli Ministry of Health (MoH) commissioned researchers to analyze adverse event reports submitted by Israelis and the researchers presented findings from the new surveillance system in an internal June 2022 meeting, video of which was obtained by an Israeli journalist.
Researchers said that the phenomenon of rechallenge—when adverse events reoccur or worsen following additional vaccine doses—proved that some of the events were caused by the vaccine.
A positive rechallenge was reported in 10 percent of the women who complained of menstrual issues, according to the researchers, who also identified cases of rechallenge for other adverse events.
On the one hand, the Bank of England just hike rates by 50bps, reupped its warning of a recession, and warned that it will have to be much tighter for a long time to come. On the other, in an apparent complete failure in communication, the Truss government and its motley crew of cartoonish officials just cut taxes by the most in almost 50 years, a tax cut which will be funded with more debt. No wonder cable is plunging, gilts are imploding and global markets are cratering on fears that the "UK model" will soon be adopted by the rest of the world (just as Albert Edwards accurately predicted just yesterday).
The California Air Resources Board voted to end the sale of natural gas heaters by 2030.
The goal is to replace all gas-powered furnaces and water heaters with electric appliances.
California can’t even keep the lights on as it is.
What could possibly go wrong?
“While this strategy will clean the air for all Californians, it will also lead to reduced emissions in the many low-income and disadvantaged communities that experience greater levels of persistent air pollution,” said CARB Chair Liane Randolph in a statement.
During a recent interview with CNBC, West explained where his deal with Gap started to go south.
“There’s a lot of stuff where they have a lot of commitments to China,” the rapper said. “We wanted to do localized manufacturing which is completely possible with some of the factories that I’m buying here in California. We can actually bring industry back to America.”

Former federal agent Gary Collins, who served with the State Department Diplomatic Security Service, Department of Health and Human Services, and Food and Drug Administration for nearly two decades, recently spoke with The Political Insider’s Brett Smith regarding the FBI’s corruption during the Trump administration and mistreatment of those who are deemed internal threats by the current administration.
Collins, who left federal employment in 2012 after becoming disillusioned with what he considered to be unethical practices and borderline-unlawful behaviors by federal employees, told Smith how former President Trump could have permanently reformed the federal government during his one term in office.
Trump’s biggest mistake and biggest missed opportunity? Not immediately firing and replacing every Obama appointee.
Governor Gavin Newsom sent a letter to Merrick Garland on Thursday requesting the Attorney General look into “kidnapping” charges for those involved in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ effort to send illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
But if shipping people out of state to try and give them a better life amounts to “kidnapping,” Newsom has some explaining to do.
In July of 2019, SFist published an article critiquing a program called ‘Homeward Bound,’ an effort initiated by Newsom as mayor of San Francisco in 2004.
The program paid for bus tickets out of town, presumably with the destination being to friends and family willing to take the homeless individual in.
Conservative activist and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute Christopher Rufo shined the light this week on some of the extremely graphic “LGBTQ+” materials being shown to children in schools.
(Warning to readers, some of this stuff is very sexually explicit.)
Known for rabble-rousing the extreme left-wing crowd, Mr. Rufo broke down the contents of a website being promoted by the National Education Association (NEA).
This website was created by the National Education Association’s “LGBTQ+ Caucus” and is meant to provide updated sexual education links and information for students who identify as LGBTQ.
With all the talk on the left that conservative right-wing extremists are trying to ban books willy-nilly for no reason and are making false claims about oversexualized content in schools, it’s essential to take note when hard evidence like this is discovered and published.
Luckily for you, dear reader, I combed through the website myself, so you don’t have to.
” dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, have filed a motion to dismiss the charges brought against their client by special counsel John Durham.|” dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, have filed a motion to dismiss the charges brought against their client by special counsel John Durham.
In the process, they have revealed another startling and potentially criminal dimension to the FBI’s probe of potential collusion between the campaign of former President Donald Trump and the Kremlin.
Five counts of lying were brought against Danchenko by Durham in November 2021. Four of those relate to statements he made in a February 2017 interview, in which he repeatedly claimed to have met and had conversations with Sergey Millian, a Belarusian-born businessman who claimed ties with the Trump campaign.
Danchenko, and thus Steele, claimed Millian was a key source of the dossier’s most explosive allegations – namely, that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between Trump and the Kremlin, that Russia’s GRU had hacked the Democratic National Convention email server and provided the content for WikiLeaks for the purposes of “plausible deniability,” and the then-Presidential candidate had received a “golden shower” from prostitutes while in Moscow years earlier, which was filmed by Russian intelligence and could be used as “kompromat.”
